Introduction to Archipelagostrawberries

Archipelago Commons, or simply Archipelago, is an evolving Open Source Digital Objects Repository / DAM Server Architecture based on the popular CMS Drupal8/9 and released under GLP V.3 License.

Archipelago is a mix of deeply integrated custom-coded Drupal modules (the Strawberryfield Modules, made with care by us) and a curated and well-configured Drupal instance, running under a discrete and well-planned set of service containers.
